Show Notes

Episode 35.  Does this sound familiar?

  • You suddenly are allergic to everything and need to figure out why - but every doctor you go to gives you a different test result
  • Your child needs a stronger and stronger prescription steroid cream for eczema every year, and the doctor never asks you what they eat or what their environment is like
  • You have a gut feeling that the physician you are seeing does not have your best interest in mind—how can you find out who is a good allergy doctor vs one who is focused on profitability?
  • You have been taking medications for years, which are generic, and you can't figure out why your prescription costs are (still) through the roof.

Today's guest is Tonya Winders, President and CEO of the Allergy & Asthma Network. The information she shares today is mind-blowing in many respects, while also being actionable and incredibly helpful to anyone who is suffering or who has children suffering from allergies or respiratory illnesses.

Among many other things, Tonya will explain what the Allergy & Asthma Network does, the "Allergy March" in kids and how to recognize it, the resources available to have a real conversation with your doctor by providing you with the "right questions" to ask, and what her network is doing to protect patients from "bad actors" and unfair drug pricing.
